1 καὶ ἐγενήθη τῷ Ιωσαφατ ἔτι πλοῦτος καὶ δόξα πολλή καὶ ἐπεγαμβρεύσατο ἐν οἴκῳ Αχααβ 2 καὶ κατέβη διὰ τέλους ἐτῶν πρὸς Αχααβ εἰς Σαμάρειαν καὶ ἔθυσεν αὐτῷ Αχααβ πρόβατα καὶ μόσχους πολλοὺς καὶ τῷ λαῷ τῷ με{T'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ἠπάτα αὐτὸν τοῦ συναναβῆναι με{T'} αὐτοῦ εἰς Ραμωθ τῆς Γαλααδίτιδος 3 καὶ εἶπεν Αχααβ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Ιωσαφατ βασιλέα Ιουδα πορεύσῃ με{T'} ἐμοῦ εἰς Ραμωθ τῆς Γαλααδίτιδος καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὡς ἐγώ οὕτως καὶ σύ ὡς ὁ λαός σου καὶ ὁ λαός μου μετὰ σοῦ εἰς πόλεμον 4 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωσαφατ πρὸς βασιλέα Ισραηλ ζήτησον δὴ σήμερον τὸν κύριον 5 καὶ συνήγαγεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ τοὺς προφήτας τετρακοσίους ἄνδρας καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς εἰ πορευθῶ εἰς Ραμωθ Γαλααδ εἰς πόλεμον ἢ ἐπίσχω καὶ εἶπαν ἀνάβαινε καὶ δώσει ὁ θεὸς εἰς τὰς χεῖρας τοῦ βασιλέως 6 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωσαφατ οὐκ ἔστιν ὧδε προφήτης τοῦ κυρίου ἔτι καὶ ἐπιζητήσομεν πα{R'} αὐτοῦ 7 καὶ εἶπεν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Ιωσαφατ ἔτι ἀνὴρ εἷς τοῦ ζητῆσαι τὸν κύριον δ{I'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγὼ ἐμίσησα αὐτόν ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν προφητεύων περὶ ἐμοῦ εἰς ἀγαθά ὅτι πᾶσαι αἱ ἡμέραι αὐτοῦ εἰς κακά οὗτος Μιχαιας υἱὸς Ιεμλα καὶ εἶπεν Ιωσαφατ μὴ λαλείτω ὁ βασιλεὺς οὕτως 8 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ εὐνοῦχον ἕνα καὶ εἶπεν τάχος Μιχαιαν υἱὸν Ιεμλα 1 Rich and renowned, Josaphat had allied his house by marriage with the house of Achab; 2 and now, when some years had passed, he went to visit him at Samaria. Many a ram, many a bullock did Achab slaughter to make him and his retinue welcome; then he had a plan to put before him, that they should march against Ramoth-Galaad. 3 And what answer made Josaphat, king of Juda, when Achab, king of Israel, proposed that they should attack Ramoth-Galaad together? Thou and I, said he, are all at one; my army is all thine, we will stand at thy side in battle. 4 But he would have Achab consult the Lord first. 5 So Achab sent for his prophets, four hundred in number, and asked whether they should attack Ramoth-Galaad or let it be? Go to the attack, they said; the Lord means to make the king’s grace master of it. 6 But still Josaphat asked whether there was no prophet of the Lord to be found, so that they could make enquiry through him. 7 Why yes, the king of Israel told him, there is one man through whom we might ask for the Lord’s counsel; yet is he no friend of mine, still he will be prophesying that ill fortune is to befall me, never good; Michaeas is his name, the son of Jemla. Nay, my lord king, said Josaphat, think better of it. 8 So Achab summoned one of his chamberlains, and bade him fetch Michaeas the son of Jemla with all speed. 1 Fuit ergo Josaphat dives et inclytus multum, et affinitate conjunctus est Achab. 2 Descenditque post annos ad eum in Samariam: ad cujus adventum mactavit Achab arietes et boves plurimos, ipsi, et populo qui venerat cum eo: persuasitque illi ut ascenderet in Ramoth Galaad. 3 Dixitque Achab rex Israël ad Josaphat regem Juda: Veni mecum in Ramoth Galaad. Cui ille respondit: Ut ego, et tu: sicut populus tuus, sic et populus meus: tecumque erimus in bello. 4 Dixitque Josaphat ad regem Israël: Consule, obsecro, impræsentiarum sermonem Domini. 5 Congregavit igitur rex Israël prophetarum quadringentos viros, et dixit ad eos: In Ramoth Galaad ad bellandum ire debemus, an quiescere? At illi: Ascende, inquiunt, et tradet Deus in manu regis. 6 Dixitque Josaphat: Numquid non est hic prophetes Domini, ut ab illo etiam requiramus? 7 Et ait rex Israël ad Josaphat: Est vir unus a quo possumus quærere Domini voluntatem: sed ego odi eum, quia non prophetat mihi bonum, sed malum omni tempore: est autem Michæas filius Jemla. Dixitque Josaphat: Ne loquaris, rex, hoc modo. 8 Vocavit ergo rex Israël unum de eunuchis, et dixit ei: Voca cito Michæam filium Jemla.
9 καὶ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ Ιωσαφατ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα καθήμενοι ἕκαστος ἐπὶ θρόνου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνδεδυμένοι στολὰς καθήμενοι ἐν τῷ εὐρυχώρῳ θύρας πύλης Σαμαρείας καὶ πάντες οἱ προφῆται ἐπροφήτευον ἐναντίον αὐτῶν 10 καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑαυτῷ Σεδεκιας υἱὸς Χανανα κέρατα σιδηρᾶ καὶ εἶπεν τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐν τούτοις κερατιεῖς τὴν Συρίαν ἕως ἂν συντελεσθῇ 11 καὶ πάντες οἱ προφῆται ἐπροφήτευον οὕτως λέγοντες ἀνάβαινε εἰς Ραμωθ Γαλααδ καὶ εὐοδωθήσῃ καὶ δώσει κύριος εἰς χεῖρας τοῦ βασιλέως 12 καὶ ὁ ἄγγελος ὁ πορευθεὶς τοῦ καλέσαι τὸν Μιχαιαν ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ λέγων ἰδοὺ ἐλάλησαν οἱ προφῆται ἐν στόματι ἑνὶ ἀγαθὰ περὶ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔστωσαν δὴ οἱ λόγοι σου ὡς ἑνὸς αὐτῶν καὶ λαλήσεις ἀγαθά 13 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχαιας ζῇ κύριος ὅτι ὃ ἐὰν εἴπῃ ὁ θεὸς πρός με αὐτὸ λαλήσω 9 There sat the king of Israel and Josaphat king of Juda, each on his throne, in all their royal state, in an open space by the gate of Samaria; and there in their presence all the prophets said their say. 10 One of them, Sedecias the son of Chanaana, had provided himself with a pair of horns fashioned in iron; With these, he said, thou shalt toss Syria about, till thou hast made an end of it. 11 And all the prophets had the same word for him; Go and attack Ramoth-Galaad, they told him, and a blessing on thy journey! The Lord means to make the king’s grace master of it. 12 So the messenger who went to summon Michaeas told him, Here are all the prophets bidding the king good speed, like one man; pray join thy voice to theirs, and prophesy good fortune. 13 Nay, answered he, as the Lord is a living God, the word I speak shall be the word he gives me. 9 Porro rex Israël, et Josaphat rex Juda, uterque sedebant in solio suo, vestiti cultu regio: sedebant autem in area juxta portam Samariæ, omnesque prophetæ vaticinabantur coram eis. 10 Sedecias vero filius Chanaana fecit sibi cornua ferrea, et ait: Hæc dicit Dominus: His ventilabis Syriam, donec conteras eam. 11 Omnesque prophetæ similiter prophetabant, atque dicebant: Ascende in Ramoth Galaad, et prosperaberis, et tradet eos Dominus in manu regis. 12 Nuntius autem qui ierat ad vocandum Michæam, ait illi: En verba omnium prophetarum uno ore bona regi annuntiant: quæso ergo te ut et sermo tuus ab eis non dissentiat, loquarisque prospera. 13 Cui respondit Michæas: Vivit Dominus, quia quodcumque dixerit mihi Deus meus, hoc loquar.
14 καὶ ἦλθεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς Μιχαια εἰ πορευθῶ εἰς Ραμωθ Γαλααδ εἰς πόλεμον ἢ ἐπίσχω καὶ εἶπεν ἀνάβαινε καὶ εὐοδώσεις καὶ δοθήσονται εἰς χεῖρας ὑμῶν 15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς ποσάκις ὁρκίζω σε ἵνα μὴ λαλήσῃς πρός με πλὴν ἀλήθειαν ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου 16 καὶ εἶπεν εἶδον τὸν Ισραηλ διεσπαρμένους ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν ὡς πρόβατα οἷς οὐκ ἔστιν ποιμήν καὶ εἶπεν κύριος οὐκ ἔχουσιν ἡγούμενον ἀναστρεφέτωσαν ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ ἐν εἰρήνῃ 17 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Ιωσαφατ οὐκ εἶπά σοι ὅτι οὐ προφητεύει περὶ ἐμοῦ ἀγαθά ἀλ{L'} ἢ κακά 18 καὶ εἶπεν οὐχ οὕτως ἀκούσατε λόγον κυρίου εἶδον τὸν κύριον καθήμενον ἐπὶ θρόνου αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσα δύναμις τοῦ οὐρανοῦ εἱστήκει ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξ ἀριστερῶν αὐτοῦ 19 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος τίς ἀπατήσει τὸν Αχααβ βασιλέα Ισραηλ καὶ ἀναβήσεται καὶ πεσεῖται ἐν Ραμωθ Γαλααδ καὶ εἶπεν οὗτος οὕτως καὶ οὗτος εἶπεν οὕτως 20 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν τὸ πνεῦμα καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν ἐγὼ ἀπατήσω αὐτόν καὶ εἶπεν κύριος ἐν τίνι 21 καὶ εἶπεν ἐξελεύσομαι καὶ ἔσομαι πνεῦμα ψευδὲς ἐν στόματι πάντων τῶν προφητῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν ἀπατήσεις καὶ δυνήσῃ ἔξελθε καὶ ποίησον οὕτως 22 καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ ἔδωκεν κύριος πνεῦμα ψευδὲς ἐν στόματι πάντων τῶν προφητῶν σου τούτων καὶ κύριος ἐλάλησεν ἐπὶ σὲ κακά 14 So he came into the king’s presence, and when he was asked whether it were better to attack Ramoth-Galaad, or to let it be, he answered, Go to the attack; all shall be well with you, and your enemies shall be at your mercy. 15 What, cried Achab, shall I never cease adjuring thee in the Lord’s name to tell me only the truth? 16 Listen then, said he; I had a vision of all Israel straying over the mountains like sheep that had no shepherd, and the Lord’s word came, They have no master now; let them disperse to their homes in peace. 17 (It is as I told thee, Achab said to Josaphat; still he prophesies ill fortune, never good.) 18 Then Michaeas went on, Here is a message to thee from the Lord. I had a vision of the Lord sitting on his throne, with all the host of heaven waiting on his pleasure, to right and left. 19 And the Lord said, Who is to beguile Achab, king of Israel, so that he will march to Ramoth-Galaad, and there meet his fall? One said this, one that; 20 till at last a spirit came forward and stood in the Lord’s presence, offering to beguile Achab. And how wilt thou beguile him? the Lord asked. 21 I will go abroad, said he, and on the lips of all his prophets I will make myself an influence to deceive. Deceive them thou shalt, the Lord said, and have thy way with them; go abroad, then, and carry out thy errand. 22 And now, see what a lying influence the Lord has spread among these prophets of thine! For indeed the Lord has determined on thy ruin. 14 Venit ergo ad regem. Cui rex ait: Michæa, ire debemus in Ramoth Galaad ad bellandum, an quiescere? Cui ille respondit: Ascendite: cuncta enim prospera evenient, et tradentur hostes in manus vestras. 15 Dixitque rex: Iterum atque iterum te adjuro, ut mihi non loquaris, nisi quod verum est in nomine Domini. 16 At ille ait: Vidi universum Israël dispersum in montibus, sicut oves absque pastore: et dixit Dominus: Non habent isti dominos: revertatur unusquisque in domum suam in pace. 17 Et ait rex Israël ad Josaphat: Nonne dixi tibi quod non prophetaret iste mihi quidquam boni, sed ea quæ mala sunt? 18 At ille: Idcirco, ait, audite verbum Domini: vidi Dominum sedentem in solio suo, et omnem exercitum cæli assistentem ei a dextris et a sinistris. 19 Et dixit Dominus: Quis decipiet Achab regem Israël ut ascendat et corruat in Ramoth Galaad? Cumque diceret unus hoc modo, et alter alio, 20 processit spiritus, et stetit coram Domino, et ait: Ego decipiam eum. Cui Dominus: In quo, inquit, decipies? 21 At ille respondit: Egrediar, et ero spiritus mendax in ore omnium prophetarum ejus. Dixitque Dominus: Decipies, et prævalebis: egredere, et fac ita. 22 Nunc igitur, ecce Dominus dedit spiritum mendacii in ore omnium prophetarum tuorum, et Dominus locutus est de te mala.
23 καὶ ἤγγισεν Σεδεκιας υἱὸς Χανανα καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν Μιχαιαν ἐπὶ τὴν σιαγόνα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ποίᾳ τῇ ὁδῷ παρῆλθεν πνεῦμα κυρίου πα{R'} ἐμοῦ τοῦ λαλῆσαι πρὸς σέ 24 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχαιας ἰδοὺ ὄψῃ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐν ᾗ εἰσελεύσῃ ταμίειον ἐκ ταμιείου τοῦ κατακρυβῆναι 25 καὶ εἶπεν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ λάβετε τὸν Μιχαιαν καὶ ἀποστρέψατε πρὸς Εμηρ ἄρχοντα τῆς πόλεως καὶ πρὸς Ιωας ἄρχοντα υἱὸν τοῦ βασιλέως 26 καὶ ἐρεῖς οὕτως εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς ἀπόθεσθε τοῦτον εἰς οἶκον φυλακῆς καὶ ἐσθιέτω ἄρτον θλίψεως καὶ ὕδωρ θλίψεως ἕως τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι με ἐν εἰρήνῃ 27 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχαιας ἐὰν ἐπιστρέφων ἐπιστρέψῃς ἐν εἰρήνῃ οὐκ ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐν ἐμοί ἀκούσατε λαοὶ πάντες 23 At that, Sedecias son of Chanaana went up and gave Michaeas a blow on the cheek; Has the spirit of the Lord passed me by, he asked, and spoken to none but thee? 24 And Michaeas only answered, Thou shalt live to see the day when thou must needs take refuge in an inner room, to hide there. 25 Then the king of Israel gave his orders; Take Michaeas hence, said he, and put him in the charge of Amon, the city governor, and of Joas, son of Amelech. 26 And give them this royal command of mine, that they are to imprison him, and give him scant allowance of food and drink, till I come back safe and sound. 27 Come thou back safe and sound, Michaeas said, and mine was no message from the Lord. Witness my words, all you that stand here! 23 Accessit autem Sedecias filius Chanaana, et percussit Michææ maxillam, et ait: Per quam viam transivit spiritus Domini a me, ut loqueretur tibi? 24 Dixitque Michæas: Tu ipse videbis in die illo, quando ingressus fueris cubiculum de cubiculo ut abscondaris. 25 Præcepit autem rex Israël, dicens: Tollite Michæam, et ducite eum ad Amon principem civitatis, et ad Joas filium Amelech. 26 Et dicetis: Hæc dicit rex: Mittite hunc in carcerem, et date ei panis modicum, et aquæ pauxillum, donec revertar in pace. 27 Dixitque Michæas: Si reversus fueris in pace, non est locutus Dominus in me. Et ait: Audite, omnes populi.
28 καὶ ἀνέβη βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ Ιωσαφατ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα εἰς Ραμωθ Γαλααδ 29 καὶ εἶπεν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Ιωσαφατ κατακαλύψομαι καὶ εἰσελεύσομαι εἰς τὸν πόλεμον καὶ σὺ ἔνδυσαι τὸν ἱματισμόν μου καὶ συνεκαλύψατο βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν πόλεμον 30 καὶ βασιλεὺς Συρίας ἐνετείλατο τοῖς ἄρχουσιν τῶν ἁρμάτων τοῖς με{T'} αὐτοῦ λέγων μὴ πολεμεῖτε τὸν μικρὸν καὶ τὸν μέγαν ἀλ{L'} ἢ τὸν βασιλέα Ισραηλ μόνον 31 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδον οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν ἁρμάτων τὸν Ιωσαφατ καὶ αὐτοὶ εἶπαν Βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ἐστίν καὶ ἐκύκλωσαν αὐτὸν τοῦ πολεμεῖν καὶ ἐβόησεν Ιωσαφατ καὶ κύριος ἔσωσεν αὐτόν καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν αὐτοὺς ὁ θεὸς ἀ{P'} αὐτοῦ 32 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδον οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν ἁρμάτων ὅτι οὐκ ἦν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ ἀπέστρεψαν ἀ{P'} αὐτοῦ 33 καὶ ἀνὴρ ἐνέτεινεν τόξον εὐστόχως καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν βασιλέα Ισραηλ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ πνεύμονος καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ θώρακος καὶ εἶπεν τῷ ἡνιόχῳ ἐπίστρεφε τὴν χεῖρά σου καὶ ἐξάγαγέ με ἐκ τοῦ πολέμου ὅτι ἐπόνεσα 34 καὶ ἐτροπώθη ὁ πόλεμος ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ἦν ἑστηκὼς ἐπὶ τοῦ ἅρματος ἕως ἑσπέρας ἐξ ἐναντίας Συρίας καὶ ἀπέθανεν δύνοντος τοῦ ἡλίου 28 So the king of Israel, and Josaphat king of Juda, marched out to attack Ramoth-Galaad. 29 And Achab said he himself would go into battle in disguise; let Josaphat, meanwhile, wear his royal robes. So none knew the king of Israel by his array, when he went into battle. 30 To all the captains of his cavalry the king of Syria had given the same orders: Press for no other mark, high or low, but the king of Israel himself. 31 And these, upon sight of Josaphat, cried out that this was the king of Israel, so that armed men surrounded him on all sides; but he cried out to the Lord, who brought him succour, and turned aside their attack. 32 Then, seeing that this was not the king of Israel, the captains of the cavalry let him be. 33 It was an archer, letting fly a shaft at haphazard, that gave Achab a chance wound; it fell between neck and shoulder-blades, and Achab bade his charioteer wheel about, and carry him away from the fight, wounded as he was. 34 With night, the battle came to an end; all day, the king of Israel had stood upright in his chariot, facing the Syrians, and did not die till evening.[1] 28 Igitur ascenderunt rex Israël et Josaphat rex Juda in Ramoth Galaad. 29 Dixitque rex Israël ad Josaphat: Mutabo habitum, et sic ad pugnam vadam: tu autem induere vestibus tuis. Mutatoque rex Israël habitu, venit ad bellum. 30 Rex autem Syriæ præceperat ducibus equitatus sui, dicens: Ne pugnetis contra minimum aut contra maximum, nisi contra solum regem Israël. 31 Itaque cum vidissent principes equitatus Josaphat, dixerunt: Rex Israël est iste. Et circumdederunt eum dimicantes: at ille clamavit ad Dominum, et auxiliatus est ei, atque avertit eos ab illo. 32 Cum enim vidissent duces equitatus quod non esset rex Israël, reliquerunt eum. 33 Accidit autem ut unus e populo sagittam in incertum jaceret, et percuteret regem Israël inter cervicem et scapulas. At ille aurigæ suo ait: Converte manum tuam, et educ me de acie, quia vulneratus sum. 34 Et finita est pugna in die illo: porro rex Israël stabat in curru suo contra Syros usque ad vesperam, et mortuus est occidente sole.
